Halloween Fantasy - The Witches Dance

This week’s antique postcard is titled “The Witch’s Dance” on the face of the card.   Unlike the romantic postcard highlighted in an earlier post, this artwork features more traditional images of a witch and pumpkins.  However, our ancestors had a more lighthearted view of the holiday. 

You will notice the witch is young, pretty and dressed in stylish red gown.  The pumpkins are given human attributes --frolicking under the bright yellow crescent moon.  And even the black cat joins in the merrymaking in celebration of the magical Halloween holiday.

Vivid autumn colors of orange, green, red and yellow are prominent making the card desirable for collectors of both yesterday and today.

Antique postcard is from my personal collection.
Marked "Halloween" Series Number 980; Postally Unused.

I collect old postcards and have still not found many Halloween ones. Yours is the color and movement in it.
